Fat is Here to Stay
Posted: 2nd October 2015
Fat is definitely here to stay. A new report published a few weeks ago by Credit Suisse continued to illustrate this. After looking at over 400 medical research papers and spoken to experts in the field, they also came to the same conclusion - sugar is bad and dietary fats from good sources are good for health.
When we talk about dietary fats being an important component in the diet, this is not a mandate to eat deep fried foods and confectionary. By consuming beneficial fats in your diet, we mean the use of butter, extra virgin olive oil and/or coconut oil in your cooking. We also mean consuming oily fish such as salmon, trout, herring, etc and also the consumption of eggs and full fat dairy. Before panic sets in about the high amount of cholesterol consumed, science is continuously showing that cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease.
So, is fear of fat fat ruining your diet?
Here at Natural Ketosis we believe that the way to a healthy lifestyle is to decrease the amount of sugars and starches in your diet and make sure you consume enough beneficial fat throughout your day. On our program you will be advised about what we mean by beneficial fats and how to incorporate them successfully into your diet.
The importance of fat in the diet is often taken for granted as fat has been on the receiving end of bad press for years. Fat needs to form part of a healthy diet as it is an important carrier of fat-soluble vitamins such as A, D, E and K. On our program you will be advised about what we mean by beneficial fats and how to incorporate them successfully into your diet.
Regularly consuming beneficial fats in your diet will help combat common side effects of consuming too many carbohydrates in your diet such as feelings of sluggishness, craving sweet foods after each meals, feeling physically full but still feeling hungry, etc.
Here at Natural Ketosis we believe in making the right food choices and being able to navigate the confusing food environment we live in.
